How Dangerous Is It To Be On Your Cell and Drive?

At this point, we all know how dangerous it is to use our cell phones while we're driving. But since 81% of us totally IGNORE all that and still talk while we're driving . . . here are even MORE stats about why it's the most dangerous thing we all do.

According to Dr. Amy Ship . . . who works as a physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston . . . 28% of all car accidents in the U.S. are caused by someone using a cell phone while driving.

And talking on a cell phone while driving is 400% riskier than driving undistracted.

Ship also says that talking on a cell phone in the car is about as dangerous as driving while you're drunk or drugged up.
